    You only get a medal if you do 101 miles. I was only there for one race so I never got a medal. After 27 miles of running in the pouring rain, all I had to show for it was a nice raincoat. Probably my least favorite race. I don’t like looped races anyway – 1 mile of the same thing over again in the rain is awful. I did like the nice bathrooms, showers and food at every mile.

    This is primarily a timed ultra on a 1-mile loop although I did the 50K option. In addition, there were 6 day, 3 day, 48-hour, 24-hour, 12-hour, 6-hour, and marathon options. It was pretty amazing that the race director could keep track of all the different options and runners on the course, but they did. The one aid station was phenomenal, offering the usual snacks plus a grill that would make just about anything you wanted to order. Belt buckles were given out to runners finishing at least 101 miles and coins for shorter distances. This year, all runners were given a Marmot rain jacket with the logo of 3 Days at the Fair, which came in handy for most of the days of the race. I lucked out and picked the driest of the 6 days of the run. This isn’t one of those epic runs in a wilderness, but was fun seeing quite a few members of the Marathon Maniacs, 50 State Marathon Club, and many others. To me, it’s more of a social event than an athletic competition, although there were several elite ultrarunners. The race is in a pretty part of New Jersey, but the race course was on a flat fairground.

    Tim! I'm amazed at how quickly your 50 States map is turning purple, you're racking up the ultras like a running machine. And clearly you're choosing wisely, since a Marmot rain jacket is some sweet swag. Congrats on notching New Jersey, and good luck this weekend at Pineland Farms! LESS
